The Clean Fifteen

//The Clean Fifteen

I posted a blog yesterday on “The Dirty Dozen,” or the top 12 produce items your should avoid unless you buy them Organic. The reason is due to the high pesticide content of these fruits and veggies.  However, there are 15 that you can buy non-organic and save money and still cut down on the toxin intake.

The Environmental Working Groups says, “Eating the 15 least contaminated foods when you can’t afford to buy organic can cut your pesticide exposure from 10 a day to 2 a day on average.”

We are all about buying on a budget, but not sacrificing our health! Follow these last two posts to help eliminate unnecessary toxins from your body and save your health in the long run!  Take The Clean Fifteen and The Dirty Dozen list with you when you shop so you know exactly what to get!
